Hagen Stier, Hamburg


Based on the results of a competition, the building underscores with its clear-edged shape the significance of the site as a gateway to Bremen’s city centre, formulating with its innovative architectural language a new and important lead-in to the streetscape on Stresemannstrasse. The offset between the market and the drive-in area creates a boldly projecting roof overhang, making the entrance more prominent. By integrating the Bauhaus logo in the façade, the design is tailored specifically to the client. Red façade elements are embossed with a stylised company logo in three size gradations. By using different sizes, positions and shading in the three-dimensional embossing, two different scales are created: the logo can be read up close on the individual panels but at the same time these come together to form a pattern making up a larger Bauhaus logo geared for long-distance impact.
